It's been 10 years since California's last execution. But death row continues to grow.
What began in 1852 as 20 acres of seaside land purchased for $10,000 is now known as San Quentin State Prison.
Today, the prison covers 432 acres, and it houses over 4,000 men, including hundreds of men who are on death row.
